ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Communication Abdul Hakeem Baloch tendered his resignation on Thursday.
He sent the resignation to the Prime Minister House with an explanation that he had met the PM on 29 April and had expressed his concerns regarding the problems of his constituency and his authority as a minister. He said that since those concerns were not addressed, he had decided to resign.
However, the Prime Minister House is not aware about the resignation of state minister.
“We have not received the resignation letter from minister. If it is received Prime Minister is the final authority whether it is accepted or not,” said PM House spokesman.
Abdul Hakeem was elected on a PML-N ticket from the NA-258 after defeating Raja Abdul Razzaq of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and local tribal chieftain Jam Abdul Karim. He was the only PML-N candidate who won a National Assembly seat from the Sindh province on the party ticket.
